I wrote to Kelly Gissendaner on Georgia's death row yesterday. She is currently the only woman on Georgias death row. I have written to her before, many years ago and never received a reply.
There is an interesting book about her case called "First We'll Kill my Husband" by Lyn Riddle. You can find in in the banner above for books on and by the women. She is on death row for the contract murder of her husband which she claims to have had nothing to do with.
This is from her page on the CCADP:
On November 20, 1998 I was shipped from the county jail to Metro State Prison in Atlanta, Georgia. When you are put into the prison system you are stripped of everything. Not just your clothes, though that's one of the first humiliations. Everything is taken from you. Your rights, your freedom, they'll even try to take your hope. You'll only have what the state gives you.
